Goal Getter

Set and achieve ambitious goals and objectives through sound planning, focused effort and a growth mindset.

Why it’s important

The link between goal setting and performance is one of the best established findings in psychology, with over 500 studies in the past 50 years. These are robust findings which have been replicated hundreds of times.

“Evidence for the basic principles of goal setting is strong and plentiful. Studies conducted in many settings across many occupations have replicated the basic findings. As evidence for HR practices goes it just doesn’t get any better. Here’s a practice that actually really works.” – Rob Briner, HR Magazine’s most influential thinker

“Goal setting is one of the most powerful and evidence based interventions for enhancing performance.” – CIPD

“The workshop prompted a very positive shift in my thinking and the advice and guidance have given me some great ways to properly plan my goals and give me the best chance of success.” – William Edwards

What you will learn

Imagine reaching your one-year target in less than six months? Or imagine achieving 200% instead of 100%? With the right plan in place, it’s entirely possible.

Our workshops are designed to: question how you think about your goals, identify the things that are most important to you, your team and your company, and help you develop a practical plan to achieve your most important goals. We’ll help you harness your efforts and focus them in a constructive direction, realising the value of your goals and taking responsibility for how you move forward.

We first look at how to pick the right goals. Which goal, for instance, will offer you the best chance of success? How ambitious should you be? Should you go for long-term or short-term goals? How many goals should you take on at once?

We then move on to outline how to shape and execute your goals. This includes why your goals should be clear, specific, detailed, measurable, and objective. We outline the best ways to set yourself up for success, including rigorous planning, and crucially, adopting the right mindset.
